Trust a Knowledgeable Murfreesboro Accident Lawyer if You've Been Injured on a Construction Site

Falling objects pose risk of serious, life-changing injury on construction sites 

Construction is dangerous work. You can smash your hand with a hammer, cut off a digit with a saw, or accidentally nail gun your toe. That's why safe job sites require workers to wear protective gear and only hire trained professionals. Falling objects are an often overlooked risk on the job. Whether you are working on an office tower or a single-story home, you are at risk of serious injury even from small objects like a screwdriver or wrench. At The Law Office of David L. Scott, our Murfreesboro accident lawyer represents clients who have been injured on a job site. We are dedicated to helping you get compensation for medical care and lost wages.

Types of falling objects and potential injuries  

Our firm handles cases involving all types of falling objects on construction sites. Some of the most common cases we handle involve: 

  • Hand tools and power tools

  • Hardware like nails, screws and bolts

  • Pieces of lumber, including timbers and plywood

  • Sheet rock and dry wall

  • Pipes

  • Beams and girders

  • Concrete

  • Loads from cranes and boom trucks

  • Construction debris

  • Chemical spills

If you are hit in just the right place at just the right force by any of these objects, you could suffer serious and permanent injury. For example, if you are hit by a falling nail, you could suffer infection that could cause tissue loss or you could have permanent nerve damage. Heavier objects like power tools or building materials can cause traumatic brain injury, spinal damage, or even paralysis. If you are injured as the result of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation under the law. Our Murfreesboro accident attorney is dedicated to helping clients just like you get the compensation you deserve.

When worker's compensation isn't enough  

Most employers are required to carry worker's compensation to cover any injuries on the job. But smaller employers can get around this requirement, which leaves workers at risk. Other employers may have the insurance, but they may not carry enough coverage to pay the full cost of medical care. In these scenarios, you could be out thousands of dollars for your injuries and lost wages. In more serious cases, you could be out tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, which could prove financially catastrophic. Our Murfreesboro accident attorney can file a lawsuit on your behalf to get the full cost of your care covered. Your settlement can also include lost wages and even a reward for the pain and suffering you experienced. 

In some cases, another party besides your employer or co-worker may be responsible for the accident that caused your injuries. In such situations, our experienced and dedicated attorney can also file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
